The Uppity Bastard

Smug Life

I’ma bout to get paid!

Manny Ramirez is, for lack of a better word, awesome.  Scott Boras, for lack of a better word, is evil.  Boras masterminded Manny’s exodus from Boston to Los Angeles, where Manny then decided to be the best hitter in baseball and raked in 17 homers, 53 RBIs and a .396 average in 53 regular season games for the Dodgers.  Not to mention his unbelievable .560 average in the postseason with 4 dingers and 10 RBIs, playing the role as the best (read, ONLY) offensive weapon the Dodgers had.  Is there a method to this madness?  Of course you retard, Manny wants a new contract.  Or, Boras wants Manny to get a new contract so he can take a big fat commision from it. 

Anyone who suspected Manny was only playing well for the big pile of scratch he is going to bring in next year is ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.  Yesterday as Ramirez was packing up his belongings to leave for the offseason, he told reporters that he is not talking about baseball, he will send them a Christmas card, and the Ramirez sweepstakes is “open to the highest bidder.”  Addding, “Gas is up and so am I.” 

Boras wants Manny to get a 6 year deal at no less than 25 million per, which is fucking ridiculous.  No one in their right mind should pay a 36 year old 150 million in guaranteed money.  However, someone will probably come close because rich people who own baseball teams are collectively insane.  The most insane of the bunch?  You guessed it, the Baby Boss himself.  I’m calling it here first….Baby Steinbrenner will go off the deep end and offer Ramirez a trillion dollars making his payroll for two players more than the GDP of many small nations.  This could very well be what we see next year, which sucks, cause I like watching Manny knock it out of Chavez Ravine every night.
